Today, Drs. Morrow and Hartman from Elite Dental talk about tips for keeping up an excellent oral hygiene routine while dental offices across the country are closed except for emergent care.

We know you keep hearing to avoid touching your face, but now is also not the time to slack on your oral health! Here are some things you can do to prevent dental issues while you’re staying at home.

First things first, wash your hands! Follow the recommendation from the CDC to help prevent the spread of coronavirus and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds.

Clean under your fingernails, between your fingers and don’t forget your thumbs. Always wash your hands prior to placing your hands or fingers near your mouth.

Brush twice daily for two minutes with fluoride toothpaste, and don’t forget to floss once a day. Most people put off flossing, but now is especially not the time!

Still feeling nervous about having your hands or fingers near your mouth? Floss picks are an option, but be aware of their limitations. Floss picks can’t get below your gum line and along the angles of each tooth. Fine in a pinch, but washing your hands thoroughly and flossing with string floss is best.

Try to limit carbs and sugar as much as possible to keep cavity causing bacteria off your teeth. We know it’s all too easy to snack frequently while staying home, but limiting your sugar intake can help prevent cavities. Stick to a healthy, fresh diet and use high sugar, high carb treats sparingly. The less time the sugar is on your teeth, the less likely to cause a cavity.

Having jaw or tooth pain? Our first tip would be to try to manage with over-the-counter pain relievers like Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and Tylenol. If you find yourself clenching or grinding more, try your best to practice relaxation techniques like massaging sore muscles with warm heat, ice any joint pain, eat a soft diet and avoid anything crunchy or chewy like gum.

If the pain is UNBEARABLE or you have any active swelling, give your dentist a call immediately. There are limitations on emergencies we can see, but we’ll do our best to get you through this time.

By not taking excellent care of your teeth now, you’ll put yourself at a higher risk for oral health complications and a possible emergency in the future. Stay healthy, stay safe, and stay at home… and don’t forget to brush and floss.

Dr. Hartman and Dr. Morrow practice at Elite Dental in Arlington, Virginia and are currently accepting new patients.

Virginia Tech’s forthcoming Innovation Campus continues to develop as the university works to deliver 750 master’s degree graduates annually by the end of the decade.

While the new campus will help cement the university’s regional footprint, Virginia Tech has been quietly providing graduate education opportunities in the greater Washington, D.C., metro area since 1969.

Virginia Tech’s Pamplin College of Business has offered its MBA programs in this region for decades and more recently made the decision to narrow its focus to working professionals in urban centers across the commonwealth.

“What we did at Virginia Tech a few years ago was to say that we really want to focus on the working professional — someone who wants to enhance their career or make a change in the direction of their career, but not at the expense of continuing to be a business professional,” says Pamplin Dean Robert Sumichrast. That allows those students to come into the classroom, he adds, “and use what they’ve learned as part of the experience of the MBA program.”

Arlington is home to the Executive MBA program, an 18-month, cohort-based option for mid-career professionals. The curriculum is centered around experiential learning modules that provide students with hands-on experience in topics like business analytics and leadership and governance.

The No. 14 nationally-ranked Evening MBA program is based in Falls Church and designed to provide maximum flexibility. Students can change their course load each semester to balance work and other commitments. They also have the option to focus their degree in one of 10 specialization areas, including traditional business topics like finance and management, and some more niche areas like healthcare information technology.

The Professional MBA program is a 24-month hybrid option with once-per-month in-person classes that rotate between Richmond, Roanoke and Newport News.

Pamplin’s focus on working professionals extends beyond its MBA programs. The college also offers part-time formats for its Master of Science in Business Administration — Hospitality and Tourism Management and Ph.D. in Business — Executive Business Research at the Falls Church location.

A 100% online Master of Information Technology offered in collaboration with the College of Engineering is available to part-time students across the globe and can be earned as a dual degree with the Evening MBA program.
